July 27, 2012 - 10:00 am

Sometimes people won’t admit they need help to stay at home, and others may be unaware that it is time for some extra help to maintain a healthy and safe home environment. Knowing and watching for signs that could indicate extra assistance is needed may fall on family, friends or advisers.

  1. When spending time with aging relatives, take note of the following: Has the elderly person changed eating habits?
  2. Has the elderly person lost weight?
  3. Is the elderly person taking care of his/her personal hygiene and dress?
  4. Is the home being maintained in good order?
